WHS TRANSITION

Dear Members

The last qualifier competition under the CONGU Unified Handicap System has just been played at the RMGC. CONGU have been exceptional to Malta and it has been a good relationship lasting several years during which we played golf here under their jurisdiction.

In the next few days, we shall be making the leap to change our handicapping system from CONGU to the WHS. The RMGC 2020-2021 season which is set to officially start on Friday 4th September will see us under a new handicapping system which by the end of this year would have been adopted almost entirely worldwide.

On the RMGC website [WHS PAPER] we are providing a paper to offer you some explanations ahead of this transition. We would have liked to do this during a presentation evening at the Club but COVID19 restrictions have not been favourable.

Please remember that at http://www.maltagolf.org/tips/29/whs-education-materialpdf there are some educational videos on the WHS.

Enjoy the game and good luck for the new season.

Yours in golf

William Beck
